He loves me not, He loves me, He loves me not, He loves ME! The exhilarating thrill of knowing we are loved is one of the greatest feelings we can experience. Likewise, one of the most painful feelings in the world is when love is removed.
Christmas time is unique in that the greatest gift of love, expressed in the form of a baby was given to all mankind – no one was to be left out – as a radical expression of unconditional love.
Lost ones and lost loves are vivid reminders of our need for love at Christmastime. We were made by God to relate and to love one another, and when that love is removed, our hearts ache.
We don’t by nature like change, nor when the constancy of one’s affection is removed, but in Christ, no matter what goes on around us, His love is always steadfast.
This gift of Love was wrapped in swaddling clothes, chose humble, harsh surroundings to get to YOU and me!
Lord, we can sometimes feel unloved, unwanted and forgotten. Thank You that You never forget and never remove Your love from us. Help us to love you with all our heart, soul, mind and strength.
